Revert back the kernel to earlier version, if the latest one is not yet stable.

You can download the rpm file with other computer, copy it over using USB drive or CDRW, and use the rpm command to uninstall the new kernel and reintall the earlier kernel.

Hi paries,

You might need to update your kernel modules too.  Get the appropriate RPM from http://atrpms.net/dist/fc4/sk98lin/

so i installed the rpm sk98lin-kmdl-2.6.17-1.2142_FC4-8.31.2.3-9.fc4.at.i586.rpm and it installed ok

then i did

[root@ns1 rpms]# ifup eth1

sk98lin device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.

do i need to do anything else after adding the rpm?

Thanks

Did you restart the machine or do a modprobe?

this is what worked..........................
Got this answer from another source

Hello,

Try replacing sk98lin in your /etc/modprobe.conf with skge:

       alias eth1 skge

followed by a "modprobe skge" and "service network restart" should
put you back in business.
